Hi,

I am BE civil final year student. I'm interested in management in construction sector. I've got campus placement(4.5 lpa), but it will not fetch me managerial skills so I'am thinking about NICMAR. Though I hv applied for it already, still a bit confused about ROI of NICMAR (also preparing for GATE). can anyone of the alumni share their perspective in this regard?

How good is NICMAR institute? Should we rely on ranking given by pagalguy.com as 90th for this insti? what are the parameters they've chosen in ranking it

Ohh. My admission process is also allotted on the same date. I was said that the entrance test wouldn't be so tough if you had previously appeared for gre/cat/xat or other placement aptitude tests. I'm worried about the institute's ranking. Is it worth spending so many bucks on it if it is ranked 90 in pagalguy rankings

Hi Friends,


This is Vijay here. I'm a Civil Engineering Graduate 2009 pass out and currently working in Bangalore with a construction firm. Currently with 4 Yrs. of Exp. I'm drawing a salary package of 4 Lac. P.A. but due to only a Bachelor Degree I'm not able to crack Promotions/Better profiles.

So I'm planning for Masters in MBA and in Construction Management from NICMAR.


Previously I had tried for SNAP and XAT but couldn't crack with better Percentiles.


Eventually I have planned to NICMAR. Pls. let me know is it worth while to Pursue Construction Management from NICMAR after 4 Yrs. of Exp. with spending around 12 Lac.


Pls. let me know your suggestions.

what is generally the cutoff in nicmar entrance xam for PG ACM for pune campus..
what are the topics for gdpi..

Do they also have negative marking ?


hi guys..............i know that i am on an old thread ,but i seriously need your valuable suggestions for my query............i am a b.tech civil engineering pass out of 2011 and thereafter i have worked as a SITE ENGINEER in a reputed project in FARIDABAD .ALTHOUGH I RESIGNED FROM THIS DESIGNATION,ONLY AFTER WORKING FOR 9 MONTHS............................AS I WAS JUST FED UP OF MY JOB PROFILE WHICH INCLUDED MANY OTHER THINGS ( viz MANAGING AND HANDLING THE SUPERVISORS,FOREMEN, AND PETTY CONTRACTORS ...............WHICH INDEED IN ITSELF IS MUCH PAINFUL THAN THE TECHNICAL ASPECT )
however i carried out all the technical details during my work stint very carefully and efficiently and even the dgm, gm and clients were usually happy with my approach.
ANY ONE OF YOU ,WHO WOULD HAVE WORKED AS A SITE ENGINEER ......................WOULD VERY EASILY UNDERSTAND THE PAIN OF WORKING AS A SITE ENGG..............WITH YOUR PROJECT MANAGER JUST WANTING YOU TO HANDLE ALMOST ANYTHING ON THE SITE( MIND IT ANYTHING,NOT JUST THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS) WITH THE LIMITED AUTHORITY PROVIDED TO THE SITE ENGG.
SO ULTIMATELY I DECIDED TO RESIGN WITH THE AIM THAT I WOULD CONTINUE WITH THIS JOB PROFILE ONLY AS A PROJECT MANAGER,WITH MUCH MORE POWERS VESTED UPON ME
SO GUYS, I HAVE HEARD ABOUT THIS ADVANCED CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT COURSE FROM NICMAR AND CONSIDERING THE INSTITUTION TO BE 3 DECADES OLD AND WITH THE LEADING NAMES OF THE INDIAN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY AS ITS BOARD OF MEMBERS, WOULDN'T IT BE WISE FOR ME TO JOIN SUCH AN INSTITUTION????????????????????????
